Series: Oh. My. Gods., Book 2
Phoebe, who recently discovered she’s a descendant of Nike (the goddess, not the shoe), is finding that supernatural powers come with a crazy learning curve. Her stepfather, headmaster of the Academy for descendants of the Greek gods, has enrolled her at Dynamotheos Development Camp—aka Goddess Boot Camp—with a bunch of ten-year-olds for the summer. Embarrassing as that is, hopefully it’ll help her gain control over her powers in time to pass the test of the gods, continue training hard enough to qualify for the Pythian Games, and enjoy her godly boyfriend, Griffin, all while avoiding the ultimate mistake of accidentally misusing powers. It’s another fast-paced myth-inspired heroine’s quest that’s sure to bring out the goddess in anyone. Especially when she does what she loves best!
What I thoughtAt first, I was just a little disappointed that this wasn't an audiobook. Yet. But then I was glad that it was available to read the old fashion way. I was glad to be able to continue Phoebe's story. I really loved her in the first and was glad to have a chance to see what happens after all the revelations of the last book.
What I liked most about this book was the interaction between Stella and Phoebe. It had some outcomes that I really didn't see coming and I really liked to see the relationship evolve. This was more than just another Phoebe story, most of the characters get some time to grow and change and I really liked watching them develop instead of staying the same.
This series is great and I do hope that there might be more in the future. I really enjoyed all of the characters and the school. But in the meantime, this is definitely going on the shelf along with my other favorites.
